Culture and Arts

Since Victorian times, the Isle of Wight has been a stunning respite from urban life for artists, poets and writers from Tennyson to Keats who have been inspired by the magical coastline and sweltering green interior. Today the Island boasts every craft from wood-carving to pottery, and thrills visitors with theatre, carnivals, antiques and galleries.
